Favorite dance: "Dance at the Gym" from West Side Story
I like him best in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers ("I stand by Adam!") but my favorite dance of his is the mambo dance in West Side Story. And I absolutely love the part from 3:51-4:06. If I could be that girl when he slides her across the floor... looks like so much fun!! I actually asked my Swing dance teacher in high school if I could learn to do that and she said it takes a lot of upper body strength on the part of the girl (basically suggesting that it would be impractical for me to attempt). Ah well. One can dream..
